NASA's Giant Leaps: Past and Future

Jul 19, 2019 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM Apollo/Saturn V Center

NASA is preparing a two-hour live program to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11, focusing on the agency’s past and the missions to return to the Moon. The program, entitled “NASA's Giant Leaps: Past and Future” will broadcast live from various locations around the United States, including Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex’s Apollo/Saturn V Center at 1:00 PM.

The nationwide program will cover the history of the Apollo era, beginning with President John F. Kennedy’s inspirational challenge and how the legacy of Apollo continues to inspire NASA’s next steps. NASA TV will also speak to a few of the estimated 400,000 people who contributed to the success of the Apollo Program 50 years ago, as well as current teams working toward taking America back to the lunar surface by 2024.

Broadcast locations include other NASA centers, the National Mall in Washington, D.C., Neil Armstrong’s hometown in Ohio and celebrations across America. Guests to the visitor complex will have the opportunity to see the broadcast from behind the scenes at the Apollo/Saturn V Center. We will also stream the broadcast on the jumbo monitors at the main visitor complex. Join us for the broadcast and you can be a part of this celebration! NASA is looking to interact with you during this historic milestone anniversary.
